Mercer Class of 2014

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to start a thread for those of us applying for c/o 2014. I am trying to get my app in before CASPA closes on March 1st. However, I want to re-take the GRE and try to raise my scores... can I update my GRE score after the app cycle has closed on 3/1?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

You can't update CASPA once you submit, but you have to send an official copy of GRE scores from ETS to Mercer anyway. Submit your CASPA, have your original GRE score in there, retake the GRE and send your updated GRE to Mercer. Since you took the GRE recently, both scores would be submitted to Mercer from ETS. Let Mercer know you are retaking the GRE also when you submit, either in your supplemental app, or just call or email the office, and they will put a note in your file.

Thanks for this thread! I have been looking closely at Mercer, and have decided to apply as well before March 1st. My initial GRE scores were horrible (test anxiety), and I will let them know I will retake the GRE in March on my supplemental app. Good luck to both of you, and hopefully we'll meet soon as accepted students!!! :o)

Blondiemed- My GRE scores are pretty embarrassing as well... for the same reason!! Hoping to do better when I retake them on March 7th. I'm looking forward to turning my app in and being able to relax for a little while. So stressful, ya know?! Best of luck when you re-take it!

Same to you, Devonp!!! I know the stress, although I've started running which is a fantastic stress reliever! Are you planning on going to an information session? I'm planning on going to one on May 19th. PM me if you're going, and maybe we can meet up beforehand!:o)

I went to one back in September of last year... It is really informative and it is nice to meet some of the people on the other end of the phone. What part of Atlanta do you live in?

Hey yall, I submitted my caspa app forever ago, but I submitted my supp. app and the payment yesterday. Do you think they will count me early admission if the $$ was postmarked before March 1? I really hope so!

Wageeslin- I called today and asked a similar question... basically, you are considered early admission as long as your CASPA app was submitted prior to March 1st. They admit on rolling admissions so it really comes down to first come, first serve. Let me know if you hear anything, please! Good Luck!!

end of feb and got an e-mail today. only got a week notice to make arrangements and two day window to accept the interview.

 

 

Thanks for the information and reply, and congrats on being invited to interview! I also submitted all my materials at the end of February - JUST before the March 1 deadline. I'd be pretty thrilled with the quick turn around you've described, but I've yet to get an e-mail that all my materials have been received. Maybe soon....that's what I'm praying for, anyway.

I'm thinking maybe they wanted to get interviews rolling before CASPA reopened. I'm sure you will be fine because once it reopens it will take several weeks for the people applying to get their application processed and sent. You are still priority!

I JUST GOT ACCEPTED TODAY!

 

The interview process was so great. It was so personal. We ate lunch with current students and had the opportunity to interact with faculty before we interviewed. It took the stress off completely.

good luck guys. i'm a student @ mercer, let me kno if you have any questions

Jen,

Question for you... I have 3 outstanding pre-req's for Mercer. I will complete two at the end of this semester and one over the summer. Mercer's website says they will not accept you with more than two outstanding pre-rec's. In my situation, would they wait to offer me a spot until May when I can send them this semester's grades? (Hypothetically saying that I was offered a spot) Does that make sense? I would greatly appreciate your feedback!!

-Devon
